The Tasmanian Chain Saw Massacre

Ancient Forests in Peril

Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
In 1970, the paper industry set its sights on the lush forests of Tasmania-beginning what environmentalists call a chain saw massacre that still cuts down 8 million cubic meters of timber each year. This program documents the ongoing fight to save the coveted woodlands, championed by a diverse group of activists. Viewers learn about early on-site protests that met with violence and abuse, as well as a wider and increasingly sophisticated Internet campaign against Gunns Limited, a corporate giant in the wood products industry, urging investors not to fund the company's new pulp mill project. Will a real winner emerge from this bitter conflict, and will the weapons be legal or lethal?
